Highbury Arts Club
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
There's flexibility to this Highbury Park venue: by day it's a coffee shop but when night falls it turns into a tapas joint. There's art, live music and comedy, too. It was set up by two Highbury residents, so there's a community feel to the place.
The coffee comes from Square Mile, and comes served alongside brunches with more than a nod to Australia – think a Sydney breakfast (sourdough toast, asparagus or spinach, parmesan, bacon, a poached egg and hollandaise), or Sydney salmon (as above, but with salmon instead of bacon). Patisserie and cakes also feature.
The evening tapas options are cooked by Alberto Valle, a chap with previous experience at Madrid restaurant El Pasca. Beers are from Freedom Brewery, and wines are from suppliers specialising in organic and bio-dynamic wines.
